Initial Patient Evaluation:
Once you’re all checked in, one of our staff members will take you back for a more depth intake. Your detailed medical history will be asked as well as any ongoing symptoms you may have along with your spider and varicose veins concerns.
This process is important because this helps us determine if your insurance will cover the procedures or not. Usually, spider veins or varicose veins that are associated with symptoms such as leg pain, leg swelling, leg cramping, or restless leg may indicate a deeper underlying medical issue such as chronic venous insufficiency.
Meeting the Doctor:
One of our vein doctors will then meet you for your consultation. During this time, our board certified vein doctor will learn more about your complaints and determine a course of action of vein treatment for you. Our vein doctor will determine whether or not you require a venous ultrasound study or not based on your spider vein and varicose vein symptoms. A venous ultrasound study helps us look deep inside your legs for any vein problems such as venous reflux.
Depending on what your vein doctor decides as well as on the ultrasound report, our team will then determine the next best care for you. We have various vein treatment options for you and our spider and varicose vein doctors will customize a treatment plan for you. You can rest assure that you’re in good hands with one of our board certified vein specialists.
If it’s determined that insurance coverage is warranted based on your medical history and ultrasound finding, your vein doctor will then submit a prior authorization to your insurance company on your behalf. The prior authorization letter contains information pertinent to your visit in order for insurance companies to give us authorization and coverage to take care of you. This process may take up to 2-4 weeks and we will handle all the paperwork for you.
You will also meet the head of our billing department, Elora. Elora will help explain to you your vein treatment insurance coverage and benefits. Before any treatment is done, you will have a detailed outline of how much you will owe (if anything). We will work directly with your insurance company to help you get treated for symptomatic spider & varicose veins. You can rest assure that there will be no surprise bills or hidden costs.
We look forward to meeting you!
